We’re bringing our show to the streets this week with two fantastic food trucks and a brewery that will put a spell on you!
We opened the hood on Food Farms & Chefs by introducing all of you to Dan Hernandez, who owns and operates the Spirit of San Juan food truck. Hernandez’ latin-based food truck offers a variety of Puerto Rican cuisine, including empanadas, alcapurrias, and his famous (and very popular) Pernil Asado.  We first met him at an event, and it was love at first bite!  So of course we had to have him on so that all of our fans could fall in love with the Spirit of San Juan too!
We then hit the road and visited the hugely successful Mama’s Meatballs, which is owned by Joe & Katherine Argento.  The couple, who had previously owned a restaurant in Lebanon, PA, were looking for a new location with room to grow.  They found that opportunity in Pennsauken, NJ when Mama’s Meatball’s previous owner was looking to sell, and the Argento’s family was ready to take on the business.  Since doing so they’ve made the meatballs their own and expanded upon the menu–creating delicious additions that fans of Mama’s Meatballs immediately loved.
Of course we can’t fill you up with food and not offer something to quench your thirst.  That’s why we had co-owner of Spellbound Brewing, John Companick, join us on the show!  Companick and his partners opened the doors to Spellbound Brewing in 2014 after years of homebrewing and contemplation–and it was evident that New Jersey’s love of beer has been brewing for a long time!  Several years and awards later, Spellbound Brewing is gearing up to celebrate their anniversary this October 8th with a plethora of the craft beers on tap, live music, and a lot of fun to be had!
So if you have a love of food, flavor, and libations–keep your dials tuned to Food, Farms, & Chefs Radio Show to hear all about the Spirit of San Juan’s food truck, Mama’s Meatballs, and wash it all down with a bounty of brews from Spellbound Brewing!
